LiannaSilverwind: I had an honour to drive Pershing (300 battles), Panther II (200 battles) and T-54 (500 battles) in CBT. I still stand by my opinion on:
Elite Panther II vs. Elite T-54 one on one duel -> Elite Panther II should win. Reason: higher accuracy and DPM. Same for Pershing.
I respect your opinion as well. :Smile_honoring:

Vallter: After a heated debate, we finally came to our decision. Allow me to assure you that this has been one of the hardest contests to judge. A lot of interesting and excellent works were submitted and more often than not, it was very difficult to choose between them.
We assembled a group of ten judges, who all carefully read the submitted works and gave them a score out of ten-point system.
We read many pieces that were very good, but unfortunately did not fulfil the main requirement: you had to write about your best battle. Nevertheless, we still awarded some of them as they were of such a high standard.
In some poems, the lyrics were connected with some beautiful melodies but we were unable to give any additional points to these poets. But stay tuned! As we will soon run a “Tank-Mix” contest and you will soon be able to participate.
The team at Wargaming.net would like to take this opportunity to thank all the participants! We really enjoyed reading the poems, but it is now time to get to the part you have all been waiting for and announce the winners!
The winner is Doofus with his entry:

The World changes, this digital age,
We play our games, time turns it's page.
Each day we hunger, we wait for the night,
to meet with our friends, to fight the good fight.
This game that we play, this social attraction,
Is filled with fire, with tension, and action.
The wars that we wage, the thrill of the victory,
Our online generation, inspired by history.
We drive forth our Tanks, we meet on the field
The metal surrounds us, our weapon, our shield.
The foes that I fight comprise every nation,
British, French, Russian, Dutch, German, Croatian.
The first fight an enemy, the next one, a friend,
Our historical shackles, we dismiss and transcend.
We're no longer bound by political ties,
Our nations united, as friends and allies.
It seems strange to think, not so long ago,
These pixels we ride in were not just for show.
Our monsters of battle, our armour and guns,
Once caused devastation to fathers and sons.
Now in our friendship, they're monsters no more,
no longer reminders of the horrors of war.
Now they unite us, instead of divide,
Allow us to play, form friendships worldwide.
Our barriers lowered, these great beasts of War,
Remind us all deeply, we battle no more.
kosmo24 receives the silver prize and 4000 Gold

Motto:
„There’s always a bigger fish in the sea...
There’s always a bigger tank in the World Of Tanks”...
A tale of blowing up to smithereens
Of dust and and smoke and wreckage left behind
With iron monsters dead-alive
Just barely for them to give
My tale the truth, a honest story,
A proof of glory and brave men.
...
...And suddenly I feel a tremor
That’s deep inside, inside my chest
As I gaze thru the scope and lens
Of this, the mighty beast with
It’s big horn appointed in the front
And legs of metal torn somehow
That they resemble with a shield
Of plates sewed up together
That go both forward, backwards
And in circles; and thus,
Those feet with claws grip up the dirt
As they chew distance in the speed
To catch the prey,
A smaller beast.
I’m going fast and now my tank
Is almout twice the size of it,
It’s nearly over as I ride
Just crashing mad my target’s lid.
He’s blown into a thousand pieces
By shere force of beastly size,
The poor thing was a much younger
And softer version of my brute.
I emphasize of what I did,
Just for a moment as I see
A bigger monster at the corner
And my knees start to shake a bit.
I shoot my deadly darkened arrow,
Of steel and bolts and nails combined,
And I imagine it would kill the mighty beast
In jus one hit,
But as I look again it’s over,
This time for me, as I am shot.
My enemy survived my blow
And hit me back instead with rage
And now I’m crippled and he’s not
And I start dying and I sink
Into my desperation as I see
His bigger, better and he’s mean.
The fire’s burning me alive
And as life fades away, I shoot
The monster one last time,
He’s hurting more, but he’s not dead,
I only hope some other tank
Will finish him and take his wage.
...
And as for me, I say my prayer
And I go...
And leave my name in history.
boredguy13 and his poem are on the third place

I've finised eating,
Homework is done,
Time to start playing
With my VK 3001.
Got the H version yesterday
After I came from school
And I'll get the P on Tuesday,
(Sorry,math exam on Monday)
I know,that's not cool.
I quickly click on "Battle!",
The game starts to load,
I nervously await the rattle
Of tank tracks on the road.
As I start to move
We immediately lose a tank;
The poor guy got shot
For crashing into someones track.
As I camp on a hill for months,
Three light tanks appear.
They seem to have good guns,
But are only fifth tier
To shoot or not to shoot,
What should I do?
I can easily kill one,
But what about the other two?
A teammate shoots one,
But i decide to show off;
Few seconds later, I hear twice:
"They're knocked off"
After two more kills,
My killcount is now at four.
I now leave the hills,
Because I crave for more.
But I made a big error,
Actually, a colossal one.
My excitement turnes into terror
When both my tracks are gone
"Who's shooting me?"
I wondered furiously
As my ears were hearing:
"Fire, put it out quickly!"
The Commander is knocked out!
The main gun is destroyed.
The engine is cutting out!
Vehicle destroyed!
I realised what happened,
My mouth released words like a flurry
Something said by lots of people:
"NOT ANOTHER ARTILLERY!!!!!1"
Special prize (750 Gold) goes for:
Silu_0

Artillery
Countdown, quiet music, silent bird’s trill
Quick look at their list – deep breath, sigh and thrill
God Save the Tank, it will be a party
Two Buses, Dracula, they got three nice arty!
Countdown ends, purr, commander’s shout
Through the roar of the engine “Time to roll out!”
There is the first target, King Tiger ahead
Soon, my dear friend, soon you will be dead
BAM, says my cannon, nice shot – say my crew
I am really proud, their HP split in two.
He’s dead moment later, my teammates got view
They started to pound him (I feel so secure!)
Wait…
I can see Leopard, hiss, Thump and KABOOM!
Sigh…
Freaking scout.
“Everyone get out!”

My Panther II is absolutely no match for a T-54 but then I'm yet to obtain the definitive 105mm gun.

LiannaSilverwind: With top gun you will absolutely and utterly destroy top gun T-54. Stock vs stock T-54 will win due to its armor.
If you seek ultimate sniper, go Panther II. If you seek best DPM, go Pershing. If you want to go Vzoooom-rush, go T-54.

View Posttabal5000, on 30 May 2011 - 09:59 PM, said: With many companies being played at the evenings,did you ever consider making the lvl limit a little bit bigger?
I was thinking like company battles,in which companies from lvl 70-90 would be matched up. Then companies from 90-120,and companies from 120-150 would be matched up.
If you already have this planned,can we expect it to be in v.6.5 or v.6.6?

Overlord: We are planning to introduce subdivisions/tiers for company battles. Supposedly in v.7.0.

View PostIzNoGooD, on 30 May 2011 - 03:28 PM, said: Question regarding Clan Wars:
Why do you state in your guide that the HQ, if captured, will be returned to use after 24 turns? When in reality it takes 72 turns?
I've reported this issue under Ticket: #BFG-927-92934 on: 22 May 2011 06:38 PM only got one response in form of a question on: 24 May 2011 10:09 PM
When we lost our HQ first time we were put in inferior positions to other Clans with working HQ. So the 2 extra days eventually cost us all territories.
Further consequence is that several players left Clan 'cause our "inactivity" - which wasn't our fault to begin with.
I've included SS, just to confirm my claims. I've asked your support, your moderators, made a post in Balkan forums and still can't get any response from WG

In the new patch the VK4502 set on fire very often from a frontal hit(sometimes happened to me twice in one match!), this is intentional or a bug? If it is a bug when will be corrected?
You mentioned in your blog that the implementation of the E-50 is still under consideration, this means the whole german medium tech tree revision(Panther and PantherII tier decrease) is under consideration?
Thanks
Jenő

Overlord: 1. There were no such changes to VK4502. Must be bad luck.
2. E50 will be implemented sooner or later. We are not sure whether this vehicle make it to 0.6.6 or not.

Overlord: 1. True.
2. Initially clan wars were regarded as end-game / high level content.

View PostB051LjKo, on 31 May 2011 - 10:11 AM, said: One question, concerning the crew; If you have a T34 with a crew at (for example) 97% in a garage when M103 is released, T34 becomes a premium tank, and the 97 percent crew "goes" with him. The question is, does m103 comes with a crew at 97 percent (or whatever percentage did it have at T34) or is it 100% in any case (even if T34 has a stock 50% crew at the time of the release)...
This issue is quite important, and the answer will direct players weather to grind 50K XP on T34 to reach 100 percent crew before T103 comes or not...

Overlord: M103 will get a crew with 100% skill.

View Posttip, on 31 May 2011 - 03:20 PM, said: Do you think buff/nerf calculations are ok now?
For example, wouldn't be better to use two steps W/B ratio (1. player, 2. tank) to nerf/buff vehicles instead of plain tank based W/B ratio? Now you say VK3601H has 52 W/B - it is OP - so we'll nerf it by matchmaking. Instead of that you should say something like player1 has VK3601H W/B ratio 55% and his overall W/B ratio (without VK3601H) is 56% so in fact VK3601H score is -1. And sum it for all n million users - if it is big plus then it is OP.
Some other parameters should be considered too, for example starting point (100% vs 50% crew), degree of researched modules, degree of equipment, games played (first 10-30 games not counted), less weight (0.5-0.7) for elite vehicles, less weight (0.7 - 0.8) for premium ammo etc.
I think right now main balancing problem is that player skills are not separated from tanks when using statistics, same for nerfs/buffs.

Overlord: Basically we are satisfied with the current metodology. Win ratio takes into account all players/skills and all vehicle setups which gives good results if sample exceeds 10k battles.

Again thanks and sorry to dont ask this on first question.

Players who have a T34 in their garage at the time of the revision will have it replaced with a M103 with the respective module setup and a 100% crew (top module T34 -> top module M103).
Additionally they will also get a T34 as a premium tank with the old crew and an extra garage slot.

What is difference between T28 prototype/T28 and T95. In papers these tanks are the same, will T95 get better gun and armor?
and another one:
Cause I'm grinding to Panther II I'm looking on tech data of all T9 meds. T54 in almost all important parameters beats counterparts (better hull armor, much better turret armor, better traverse both turret and whole tank, slightly worse penetration with better ROF which compensating worse damage). I know tanks should be different but it's looks very bad when one tank got 200mm of frontal armor on turrent and its counterparts got only 120. I hope E50 will have these values equal. So, question is: will E50 be a real counterpart to T54? In all aspects?

Overlord: 1. Practically these 3 make the same vehicle.
2. It will be competitive enough to become a solid tier 9 medium.

admin: The insight into WOT-project is continued. We are going on with the revelations of our internal secrets but we keep the best bits for later and proceed with the description of how the operation of the game works. Today the department that appeared under our thorough examination is…ours, of the people who deal with you, dear players! We are called Community and Content department and the managers of the department are serving as a link between you and the developers. You’ve seen us already featuring in Beginner’s Diaries but then you were reading mostly about our leisure. However we do work! And this blog post is all about our daily routine and how we deal with…you!
As you can probably gather, we work in two different directions – the audience from Russian and other Russian-speaking countries and the players who enjoy playing World of Tanks on European and American servers. Obviously we are going to acquaint you with those whose nicknames you see regularly on forums.
And here is the face of the community:
Veniamin aka Zephid, Community Dept Lead
Posted Image
“Despite rare acrid comments we do not want to spare the game from players!:) Our main task is to make the community happy by means of some game-related entertainment including events and specials. We tend to make it comfy for fun, communication, creativity. No game exists without players and that’s why our department’s functions are crucial as we work with the players’ feedback, statistics, preferences, actions…” Zephid says.
In other words, what we do here is checking on you, guys! :) We are responsible for dealing with players in terms of their obeying the rules of the game, solving conflicts, proceeding feedback, informing you about the news within the project and its plans, organize events and specials.
Actually you should be a little apprehensive of us… We are strict when it comes to dealing with players violating the rules of the game.
And the terror of all the breakers is embodied in the name of Gustav_Fuchs (aka Andrey) whose responsibilities include banning accounts in case of different violations. He is a real threat not only for independent players but also for whole clans. He deals with all problems regarding these alliances of players and he also has the right to disband clans.
Gustav_Fuchs aka Andrey
Posted Image
“The thing I really like about what I am doing is its tight connection with history. Very often I cannot make a decision without a thorough look through reliable historical sources and consulting numerous specialists,” - Gustav_Fuchs says adding that the very best about his job is the preparation of info about in-game vehicles and those to be implemented in-game later.
As for violating the rules we analyze each situation separately and the degree of seriousness influences the choice of punishment. To help us out we gathered a team of reliable and dedicated moderators who are always there to check the forum threads and monitor the general atmosphere reigning on the community portal.
Obviously, the same scheme is applied to encouraging the players. Hard to imagine our life without World of Tanks contributors’ help. We observe their work and do our best to encourage them accordingly. Owing to their active participation in all aspects of the life of community the work of community managers goes smoothly and the communication between developers and players is being executed successfully.
The person responsible for the coordination of moderators’, translators’ and basically all outsourcers’ work is known among players as mediahead. media aka Alexey fancies the job a lot as it always brings something new.
mediahead aka Alexey

“I have a great deal of routine work that I am supposed to do always but every week I am trying to find something new to work on. Currently we are preparing the launch of some new projects including the one for newbies that will help newcomers to get adapted fast and WOT-radio that we are working on together with the players. I am open to new ideas and initiatives from our players and I always support them. So, do not hesitate if you believe you have a worthy idea to suggest!”, mediahead explains. He also added that at the moment he is busy with preparation to Electronic Entertainment Expo – E3 – which takes place in Los Angeles. So, if you want to see him in person, you know when and where to find him - Los Angeles Convention Center June 9-11. By the way, the exhibition promises to be great! Just imagine the three real tanks – American, German and Soviet – that have been rented by Wargaming.net to organize a parade along the streets of the city of angels. Apart from that on June 10 everybody who happens to be in LA will get a chance to catch up with the devs (and media) for real in a friendly atmosphere of a cafe specially rented for WOT-gathering (follow http://game.worldoftanks.com/news/ for details and updates).
Possibly the most fantasy and energy-consuming part of the job of community-managers is organizing events and specials. This deal of work is mostly under the control of our youngest representative – Valter aka Vladimir. There’s no end of creativity in this community-manager and in the sphere of dealing with players creativity is a must!
Valter aka Vladimir
Posted Image
“My job is really interesting. I deal with users every day and each of them is unique and interesting. My working day starts with checking forums and PMs to find out what issues are of greatest interest and importance for players. My main goal is to help them and make their day as good as mine!” Valter admits.
Although the guys work really hard, you would never know that without the news feed on our community portal. The news feed update is the main responsibility of content-managers who work side by side with their community counterparts.
Mad_Hatter aka Veronica prepares news and supervises the US community portal, namely the news articles threads, in order to obtain the correct feedback which will eventually be passed on to the developers.
Mad_Hatter aka Veronica
Posted Image
“I adore my job as I am a kind of a megaphone that broadcasts WoT news to all its players. The opportunity to present news in an exceptional way seems too yummy to miss it! And surely, communicating with our noble warriors gives me perfect basis for self-enrichment,” Mad-Hatter confesses.
Same task on the European server is performed by Cheeka aka Irina, whose favourite thing about the job is spotting game-related news and issues, making interviews with players winning competitions and contests and presenting them in blog posts or news feed.
Cheeka aka Irina
Posted Image
“WOT is not just a game, it’s the means of uniting completely different people who have their different reasons for spending time on battlefields or forum threads discussing game-related and non-game stuff. And that’s always fun and joy to learn what players are when they are not in a tank,” Cheeka reveals.
All devoted tankers know that the main sources of information – community portals - are in English. It could be a trouble for a lot of those Europeans who speak English not well enough or do not speak it at all. The intermediates between such players and the devs are the community managers speaking German and Polish and our helpful outsources from France, Spain, Hungary, the Czech Republic etc.
Gretchen aka Margarita is a life-line of the German-speaking community. Alongside moderators Gretchen deals with all the issues the German-speaking players are worried about. She is also the one who has been responsible for the translation of the game client and the localizations in German. Those who want to meet her in person will get this chance during the exhibition in Koln in August.
Gretchen aka Margarita
Posted Image
“The job allows me to communicate with people from different parts of the world. Although I speak German and English, I prefer to work with the former and it makes me really happy that I am helping the whole of German-speaking community to enjoy World of Tanks to the full scale in their native language. And the thing that makes me proud is that we all are working on the project that has been developed by ourselves,” Gretchen resumes.
Polish-speaking players can also enjoy the game in their native language owning to the help of Schperling aka Pavel. Taking into account that the Poles are really active participants of different events and tournaments (which, by the way, are also coordinated by Schperling), his knowledge of Polish is to everyone’s avail. Currently Schperling is busy with the organization of the Grand Finals of Ural Steel Championship that will take place in Moscow shortly.
Schperling aka Pavel
Posted Image
“I get great pleasure from organizing WOT-tournaments as the game concept is just perfect for organizing cybersport events. And before Ultimate Conquest was introduced in WOT, tournaments were the only means for players to show their combat skills. However the appearance of Ultimate Conquest won’t stop the series of competitions and tournaments. Quite the opposite, we are preparing a range of captivating struggles not only on the global map,” Schperling reveals a bit of a secret. Together with Schperling Electro Bragin aka Alexey is also busy with the organization and coordination of the tournaments.
Electro Bragin aka Alexey
Posted Image
By the way all tournaments markings, all banners and other designs on the web appear owing to work of another soldier of the community front – juraj aka Anton. In other words, he makes the life on our portal beautiful!
juraj aka Anton
Posted Image
However the main secret of our department won’t be revealed in this blog post. The person who knows answers to all of the questions (the main Q(uestion)A(nswer)-specialist) – Overlord – has decided not to give out any detail about himself.
“Everything players might be interested in, they will find in my blog,” Overlord states. Well, what can we add? Read Overlord’s blog! :)
Getting more and more involved? More stuff is coming soon. Do not miss it!

So I was wondering,will this link be present at the launch of the US TD's ,so I can speed up the time needed for me to get T95?

Overlord: Yes, the link should be added in 6.5.

View PostSzalona, on 30 May 2011 - 08:51 AM, said: It was said that American equivalent of "the true premium tank" (like Lowe, KW-5) will be the changed T34 (if I'm not mistaken). Is it going to be sold in the shop like the T8 premiums except M6, and is it going to earn as good as Lowe/KW-5, or it will be "second class premium tank" like M6?
Edit. I was not mistaken: http://forum.worldof...467#entry575467

Overlord: T34 is going to be purchasable in store.
It should enjoy the same income/costs.

View PostMStinos, on 30 May 2011 - 09:06 AM, said: Hey Overlord.
Can it be that credit earn rate for T34 is normalized? Or am i just playing a lot better.
Instead of -25k, i earn an average of 10k per round. I'm very happy!
And maybe it's just me, but yeah it sucks that tracers are gone, but I prefer removed tracers over cheaters any day!
Good job on that Devs.

Overlord: There were no changes apart from those mentioned in the patch notes.
It sucks, but we were forced to do that.

View PostKampfpanzer, on 30 May 2011 - 09:46 AM, said: Gold exchange amongst players was announced for 0.6.4
1) will it be possible to freely choose to which player you transfer your gold or is it limited to clan-members only?
2) is there any ETA when the interface for that feature will be unlocked?
Thanks in advance

Overlord: 1. We are planning to make gold transfers available for all players. Improving the security of the service at present.
2. Can't give any ETA.

View Postmmipko, on 30 May 2011 - 09:50 AM, said: dear Overlord,
How do you plan to compensate to the premium users who have paid one product and all the sudden got broken one ?
I would also like to know what is behind this Moderating policy - moderating policy is outrageous ! There is huge chance that some moderator will find this post offensive and give me the ban.
Personally I don't care if I get ban although I have spent a LOT of money - you can certainly check amount. The reason why I do not care any more is because I have requested my account termination due lack of user support, the way you handle user complains and ABOVE all because of Moderators.
Treating customers like this is below any acceptable limit.
There is no way I will spend a single euro any more on WOT, or any other Wargaming product ever. I can bet that you do not give a damn about this and that's exactly the attitude that repelled me from this product.
EDIT: my ingame nick is mipko - so you can check what type customer is signing off.
regards
Mirko

Overlord: Premium account brings 50% more credits, allows to create platoons and companies. These features are working fine, the servers are stable.
There is nothing to compensate.

View PostZoijar, on 30 May 2011 - 09:54 AM, said: Did you have new evidence that sudden, massive cheating occurred as compared to the months before that? What people mean is that the hack has been around for some 8 months, and the sudden radical decision to turn tracers off seems arbitrary. Most people would prefer to have tracers on and live with the massive amount of cheaters for a while until you fix it. Why didn't you just silently implement some memory crc check in a stealth update and ban everyone cheating? Maybe next time :)

Overlord: The issue escalated to a such degree that it was necessary to disable this feature.

View PostDaKrieger, on 30 May 2011 - 10:11 AM, said: Credit transfers should not be implemented, because this would definitely cause "chinafarmers" to start Real Money Trading in WoT. <_<
And now a Question for you: Since I read somtime during Beta, that you guys(WG) plan to make "Tank&Crew Auctioning" possible somtime in the future. I this still in consideration/development and could you give a rough ETA about that? Like 2-5 months or longer.
Found nothing about it in this thread and only old stuff in the other posts on this forum so plz don't ban me :)

Overlord: Auctions/trading have been frozen, might be even cancelled.

View PostSquadman45, on 30 May 2011 - 11:02 AM, said: A question about changes on trees.
I am closer to the T34 and want know a clarification on this
"Players who have a T34 in their garage at the time of the revision will have it replaced with a M103 with the respective module setup and a 100% crew."
Respective module setup... what do you want say with this??? if i research on T34 tracks and 2nd turret i have both on M103??? their equivalent, and if i win xp on T34 i have it on M103 after the change???
Thanks.

Overlord: Yes, correct. Researched top turret for T34 will give you researched top turret for M103. Experience will be transferred to M103.

Question: The clan wars community vote is at -+ 400 people voted now. What do WG consider an adequate sample size of the population with regards to public opinion? In other words how many people have to vote before it is considered a fair representation of the communities viewpoint?
P.S I have alot of respect for the amount of patience you have Overlord. Some of the posts you guys have to put up with would drive me crazy. Keep up the good work. Stay sane.

Overlord: Don't know yet. Will be still assessing the situation. Currently we are not ready to change the existing concept.
Thank you.

Dunno why I never heard of it...

Overlord: I think you can just google it, you will find plently of images featuring "Star Wars mod" for World of Tanks.

Last Sunday I was trying to play EU, but it was switched off. So I went to RU to my old account, but after like 2 games I think it went down too. So no WoT at all. Maybe switch it one day EU, next one RU etc.?
And btw. - any problems with EU server restart last Sunday? It was down longer then RU (RU and EU went up together, however EU wend down some time before RU) :)
Edit. Yes, I'm addicted... at least my wife was happy that I checked her Frontier Vile lol :)

Overlord: 1. Actually there is a 30 mins gap between the two. :) EU restarts at 5:00 UTC, RU - at 5:30 UTC.

Does the gun depression depends on the gun used with the same turret ?
I've just equiped the 128mm on my VK45, and I feel that the gun depression is worse than with the 105mm, the 105 model went through the glacis when aiming at the lowest, but the 128 has a good margin before being in contact, and when playing it seems I can't aim as low as before.
Or maybe it's just me, tired after grinding 50k xp.

Absolutly no counter battery, no indication of where the enemy spg is shooting from & as well as the normal tank. You just get hit randomly & got no clue where the fire is comming from besides the built-in damage notifiers that will tell you the general direction of the fire.
The question becomes: Possible with a city priority before open maps? Making one class that 10% of the whole community plays suffer compared to the other 90% of the other players which are playing the other classes, but suffering becouse the other 10% is having the time of their life?
Oh, and I'll risk the: Ask a question & you have a 50/50% chance of getting banned randomly-whack-of-meter.

I ask because it's not the first time I've shot a tank (M6 in this case) coming straight at my T-34 with 57mm ZiS gun. I fire 6 shells straight into his front armor, all penetrate doing in total 85% damage. Once he ram into me, I fire another 5 shells, none penetrate, before he kills me.

2. Premium users don't pay for tracer effects.

View PostTerrorsatan, on 29 May 2011 - 07:22 PM, said: Why does the Battletimes in Clanwars switch from 1 Turn to another?
Today we wanted to attack a land, and we need to defend our landing zone.
This morning the Battle time for the Attack was 19:30.
Our defend was set to 20:41.
And at the 19:00 Turn it suddenly became 20:30+ attack and 20:41 defend.
So what is this?
this is seriously ********...
How are we supposed to do this ( since were a relatively small clan ) ( lotta members but not that frequent players [we can get 1 full company out of it ] ).
Thanks in advance.

Overlord: http://uc.worldoftan.../expansion.html
Encounter battles always start in 30 minutes after Prime Time. If an encounter battle ends in a draw, both clans are considered defeated. All defeated chips are removed to reserve. All chips from the winning clan continue their movement and participate in the battle for province, which starts in 90 minutes after Prime Time.
The first battle will occur in 90 minutes after Prime Time between the owner and one of the attacking clans. All battles for the province which is attacked by several clans will occur one after another with 30 minutes interval between each battle. The winner of the last battle in such series becomes a new owner. For the battle with the owner, clans are picked randomly out of the list of all clans applied for that battle.

Overlord: Haven't decided on it yet.

View PostBaldfish, on 30 May 2011 - 03:35 AM, said: No we pay for you to improve the game. not make it unplayable.
Any reason why the decision was made to change it now when its been around for a while?

Overlord: The reasoning behind this was to combat massive cheating, not to deprive players of an important part of gameplay.

(I like %%, but in bottle.. cold :))

Overlord: The amount of experience earned is diplayed in crew member's profile. Though it might be a good idea to "exp to the next rank".

View PostEl_Barto, on 28 May 2011 - 10:27 AM, said: How long does the supertest last?

Overlord: Depends on the update that is to go live. Can be 1-2 weeks, can be 1-2 months.

Overlord: Somewhere at the beginning of June, I think.
If you are willing to partake, register on Russian server to be totally sure you wont miss the testing.

View PostLordsmoke, on 28 May 2011 - 10:46 AM, said: So just log on the Russian server?

Overlord: Just create an account there. Prior to the launch of public test the database from the main server will be copied according to a particular date. No need to play on the main RU server.

View Postbeastlysun, on 27 May 2011 - 06:31 PM, said: How do you create ammo/gun dmg?

Overlord: Hitting ammo rack / gun, I believe.

View PostDriveBy, on 28 May 2011 - 11:12 AM, said: I have a question regarding tracer issues:
Is it possible to temporary (until hotfix) limit the mapcycle to non-open-space-bushy-maps (that means excluding mainly Malinovka, Murovanka, Erlenberg, Westfield, El Halluf, Karelia, Prohorovka) or even limit mapcycle to city maps alone?

Overlord: Not planning to do so. That would be too harsh.

View PostSzalona, on 28 May 2011 - 11:12 AM, said: Can we have copy of our EU accounts? You said some time ago that maybe you will do it. I know that exp and credits are boosted on test servers, but still some unnecessary grind is needed from us, but not from our Russian cleags.

Overlord: I said it was possible. Things will become clear next week.

I had a look through the interviews to see if my question was in there but couldn't find anything, apologies if it's been addressed.

Overlord: Your IS will remain researched.

Very often I hit him, and destroyed for example the gun or observation device, and got no "critical hit!" sound message at all! Is this a bug? I was using the Hetzer with 105mm HE, his was a Tiger. It was at ~150 metres on malinovka open ground.

Overlord: Yes, can be a sound message bug. Need video for confirmation.

LiannaSilverwind: Hello people,
there are many boardgames/wargames with WW2 tanks, including titles like Tide of Iron, Axis and Allies miniatures, Flames of War, Memoir '44 (cough) that have miniatures; even more boardgames/wargames with counters like Clash of Heroes, Panzer General (not legendary PC game), etc.
Did you play any of them? Which one was your favourite?
I have played:
Memoir '44 - too easy/abstract for me, ideal for children or starters though
Tide of Iron - nice one, but I missed more different types of vehicles and AT guns
Europe Engulfed - my favourite operational/politics level, but it's not about individual vehicles, it's about army corps.

View PostMordante, on 28 May 2011 - 09:41 PM, said: This is also not true. There are no heavy tanks until T7 in the German line. So going PzII, PzIIIA, PzIV VK3001(H). Has the same amount of light and medium tanks as going Pz35(t), Pz38(t), Pz38NA, PzIII/IV, VK3001(P). Also in the full German tree the VK3001(H) does lead to the VK3002(DB)and not to the VK3001(P).

LiannaSilverwind: You can go the following lines:
1) Full heavy: Loltraktor -> VK 3601 H -> Tiger. Fast.
2) Non-standard heavy: Loltraktor -> Pz IV -> VK 3001 H -> Tiger. Fast. Allows moving to Medium line!
3) Medium line through heavy line: Loltraktor -> Pz IV -> VK 3001 H -> VK 3001 P. For those who hate Czechoslovak tanks or Pz III/IV.
Path 2 grants you ability to get to the Tiger and into medium line at the same time.
